How can I add support for the CUPS bugtracker?

Asked by Adam Buchbinder

A comment in bug 37392 states that adding support for CUPS's custom bug tracker is a low priority, as it's the only project using it. Where would I start if I wanted to add support for their tracker, and how would I test it before submitting a patch for inclusion?

Hello Adam,

    So what Launchpad normally does it pull data from the bugtracker,
ideally in a structured manner (XML, CSV, etc), and ideally obtaining
information for multiple bugs in a single HTTP request. In some cases,
such as SourceForge and Google code, there is no structured output and
we need to screen-scrape a bug at a time, which is inefficient and
annoys the server admins.

We also need to know if the bugtracker accepts anonymous connections or

That information already takes us a long way to adding support. If you
can add anything you discover to bug 37392 it will be much appreciated.
